their homes to witness in the light of day what superstorm sandy had brought to our shores, what it had done to our neighbors and how it had wrecked their lives and yet today, the light of day is just about to only light that some new yorkers who live in far rockaway and queens have because if you can believe it, they still don't have power. 16 days and counting. while the long island power authority says that 99% of customers do have their power back, that's just not so for the 206 homes including families like this. they have been forced to endure freezing temperatures over the weekend, no heat, no light, no electricity for cooks. james sanders jr. joins me now and he represents the far rockaway and also is a city council member. for that district. sir, thanks for being with us. it's a very simple question i have for you. why are these people the last of the last and when is relief coming? >> i would argue that it's a question of race and class. i would argue that it's a question of the antiquated ability of lipa to deal with its reza debit dents. we have been so mistreated by lipa, i myse
also thought he sort of nailed this what i think is a lie that hurricane sandy won the election for barack obama. it may be he was emboldened by a crisis he had to deal with, but he certainly came alive in the last week in a way he hadn't been throughout the campaign, certainly wasn't in the debates or the convention. i saw the old obama. i saw him four years ago and he was doing that thing on the stump and he was emotional, he was passionate. that in the end was a connection to people i just don't think mitt romney ever established. >> no. well, i think people needed to see it so badly from president obama and that's really the first debate, what went so abysmally wrong that he didn't have his head in the game and mitt romney did. had it not been for that debate there would have been a more clear-cut definition of some sort that he was going to have this kind of sweeping win that he did have, then you look at what happened and he had this week before the election step up, show leadership, this horrible tragedy and remind everyone that we're all americans and we need to be there
